Most of our recent professional exchange work has been hosting Israelis from the Sovev Kinneret Region to the cluster communities (Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Tulsa). Professional exchanges are an important and effective way to create people-to-people connections between Israelis and Americans. This program creates the opportunity to host a professional delegation from the region for a week during each calendar year. Each community decides what type of delegation will help them meet their local goals. Our community is usually interested in inviting a specific delegation defined by profession, such as physicians, chefs, social workers, ecologists or others.
For the first time, Milwaukee sent a return professional exchange delegation to the Sovev Kinneret region for further professional enrichment on PTSD treatment in March 2013 (Social Workers Delegation).
Following this, Milwaukee sent a second professional exchange with a Teachers Delegation in October 2013.
